Don't get me wrong. I am really enjoying this show, especially Kevin's story but it is so snail paced as to what's the connection with KKK and too much on each Ks that I am wondering where is this heading and will the balance of the episodes convince me of the love between Kristal-Kevin as it would with the cuteness overload that is between Kevin and Wong Sir? I mean Kevin and Wong Sir is the real pair here.

Still a bit lost as to KKK connection where all 3 Ks have yet to meet. But it is funny how Kevin actually hoped to get fired or hand in his resignation after what happened but Wong Sir won't have it. He made a deal with a very jubilant Kevin; Kevin is to be a mole in a cheating/fraud case involving developers and housing developments and Kevin was so happy to know he is still a cop and he can legitimately do renovation company work (like how his brother did where he helped his brother before he became a cop) and keep 2 salaries! It is a small case anyway but Kevin proves himself street smart and got close to one of the bigger guns played by Oscar Leung. Funny how "lucky" he is because Oscar knows the violent dude from 2 years ago, that robbery case! But Kevin doesn't know yet.

Meanwhile King Kong meets his friends again (and interestingly played by Louis Yuen, didn't expect him and he sports a rather bad China Cantonese accent) and his friends are cheats aka run in front of cars, feign accident, claim compensation.

Then there's Kristal and daughter and husband still snapping at each other.

So far, KKK not meeting one another yet. I find Kevin's story interesting, Kristal's ok but don't get what's King Kong for.

Better fast fast move on because series is dangerously being stagnant plot wise.

I persevered and guess what? Episode 3 was da bomb! It was funny, it was scary, it was tragic, it was entertaining, it was different, it was quirky and yet well.. not sure where's the destination but it is going somewhere. I really enjoyed episode 3 which guarantees me watching episode 4.

I am more interested in  knowing how he lost his "balls" (which will be told in short flashback) and ultimately finds his "courage" (probably by the end of the series).

I spent 2 hours of my life that I am not getting back watching a series that doesn't know its own direction, more so its destination, going nowhere and like its Chinese title, 迷, that is literally Lost. Or is it Riddle? Confusion? I will go with Google Translate. It's lost from episode 1.

What I am definitely NOT watching

In case you are curious, I am DEFINITELY NOT watching TVB's Burning Hands.  I love Ruco Chan but I won't spend a minute watching a series populated with actresses I do not like and having Ruco having a look that I do not feel very attractive and a topic I do not care about. So that's that. I am definitely NOT watching Burning Hands.

Interestingly I could no longer continue with the last 15 episodes or so of Princess Wei Young. I realise that series is same story told a million times within the same series. There is no real anger, no real purpose, no real sense of getting anywhere at all. It is just heroine gets tortured, hero saves her, the end. And I skipped and in the end the hero died saving her and bless her, she got burdened with looking after his "house" aka his kingdom. It's about 2 people who can't take care of anything themselves but ended up taking care other people's stuff. However, the acting is seriously good and whilst the villains are terrible, you can't help but pity them. You know what, I will do a review for whatever spot I stopped at. I just couldn't go on with a series where no one ever EVER sweats even when they're poisoned, imprisoned, tortured, hurt and in feverish pain. Not one drop of sweat.

I wanted to watch When A Snail Falls In Love because I like the morose sulky looking lead actor, Wang Kai but the idea of watching a snail falling in love amidst murder cases is not very appealing to me. It's as if he can't fall in love outside of his work force because he's too lazy to look. And I made the mistake of skipping to the end where they kissed passionately and it was one of the worst kisses I have ever seen. For this, C Dramas must learn from K Dramas on the art of kissing. I might still watch when I had nothing to watch. So this is not definite.

I am watching Saimdang which is getting on my nerves. Lee Young Ae is heavenly but I can't stand the flashback of a mind time travel of a flashback within a flashback concept. I am confused. So do make up your bloody mind; is this Bu Bu Jing Xin or is this just  a story within a story told from ... Saimdang's perspective but why is it showing everyone's perspective? Why is a university lecturer watching laundry for professor? Is Korea that bullying culture? Why isn't Korean authorities banning such negative portrayal and yet they punish those who spread rumours and dodge taxes? If I work in Korea does it mean I have to make kim chis to please everyone when I am there as a professional? What kind of a bullying society is this?! If Lee Young Ae gets it that way, what more for mere mortal like me??

I am also watching TVB's Tiger Moms which is enjoyable except;

a. I hate the boring proper subdue nice gentle Sharon Chan's character. If her son is getting flak for her dual role, for god sake, quit as Disciplinary teacher!

b. why are all the men such wusses?

c. can we have a real teenage rebel  in the younger daughter.. Echo issit? Wow, now we have Venus and Echo. Is there any better indication on what they will become? Venus will be embroiled in dating which mom disapproves and Echo will stop listening to mom, since everything mom says is just echooooooooo...

I might watch the new Kevin Cheng series because I have nothing else to watch.

And I am tired of waiting for Cha Seung Won to come up with a new TV series. He's busy doing absolutely nothing but modeling, ads and now fan meeting in Japan. Where is the new TV series? Let's not talk about movies. They're nothing. I want TV dramas. I now need to fall back on Hwajeong because I miss him on TV but come on Chajumma!! Where's your next TV Drama?!??

ANDDDD I am waiting for Fukuyama Masaharu's Scoop movie which I learn got a blurry love scene at the end. Wow, the man has matured as an actor! And I am still wondering what's his baby's gender.

As for Wallace Huo, well I may have to suffer Zhou Xun to watch him and gorgeous costumes in Ruyi's Royal Love In The Palace. Which made me think, maybe TVB can rent these same costumes as second hand costumes for their Ruco Chan's mega series on He Shen instead of using their 10th hand costumes which looks absolutely worn out. And don't give me the BS that He Shen is not married or in love with one of the emperor's (old or young, don't care) concubine. I will scream.

So, what are you watching?
